Auckland at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. More information.
With a tradition of academic excellence, Massey University is the nearest thing New Zealand has to a national university. It has nearly 18,000 students enrolled on three main campuses, with approximately 17,000 national and worldwide distance learning (extramural) students.
Massey University’s innovative Auckland / Ōtehā campus is located on the North Shore of New Zealand’s largest city – Auckland.
The campus grounds are peaceful with many native trees and plants, yet it’s only a five minute walk to the expansive Westfield shopping centre with its movie theatres, shops, restaurants and numerous fast food outlets. If you want to travel further, there are buses running regular routes around the North Shore region and into Auckland city.
The Manawatū campus is Massey's original campus. With lovely heritage buildings and park-like grounds located near Palmerston North city, it is one of the best places in the country to experience the real student lifestyle. With a huge portion of the population under 25 it is the perfect place for learning and living.
The large campus is beautiful year-round with 11,500 different varieties of plants and trees in the form of manicured gardens, green fields, woodlands and bush.
The Wellington campus is in New Zealand's capital city and is a great place to live. It is a compact city, set between a magnificent harbour and rolling green hills, where shops, exciting galleries and great restaurants are within easy walking distance. The Wellington Campus is centrally located near the city's artistic and entertainment quarters of Cuba Street and Courtenay Place in the heart of Wellington.
Massey University's distance learning (extramural) study programme provides the flexibility many students need to fit with today’s changing lifestyles. You simply study when, where and how you want to. Wherever you can be reached via the internet, post or telephone. It’s a formula that’s been successful for 250,000 students over the past 35 years, and recently made even easier with the introduction of online study.
